Hairless Cats – Pet tip 145

For many, just the thought of a hairless cat is enough to make them shudder. For these people, the sight of a hairless cat is shocking, and touching one is downright scary. If you are one of these people, then this article is unlikely to sway you in the other direction. However, if you are the kind of person who has always been a little bit intrigued by the unique look of hairless cats, read on. Behind their striking appearance is a fascinating background, and if you are considering making a hairless cat part of your family, there is also a plethora of information to know about the proper way to care for these beautiful creatures.

Congenital hairlessness in cats is an extremely rare trait. Essentially, a hairless cat is the result of genetic mutations in one or more of the genes which encode for normal hair development. While the word ‘mutation’ implies that this genetic condition is unwanted and accidental, there are actually many breeders who select specifically for the hairlessness trait and work to maintain the hairless lineage in their cats.

The last to join our house... Asker is actually Fagan's little sister, 2 litters behind.  I caught her sleeping in a tree at about 5 weeks old, and had got her for a neighbour.  The neighbour then decided about 2 months later that she was unable to care for her so I insisted that I take her back.  She spent the first few months here hiding as the kids that had her really tormented her and she spent most of her first months under a bed.  But here we are years later and she is so much better, in fact she now comes running to meet my parents when they come to visit, meowing and rolling on the couch beside them for petting.  She makes noises every time you touch her and always has something to tell you.  Although she hangs back at play time a bit until the older boys are tired out, she does love to play string and laser.  She, like her older brother, also loves to drink out of the faucet.  She's not much for treats, or fancy toys... just a good old belly rub and someone to talk to.  She is just a beautiful little cat, and I am so glad she came back to stay with us!
